As we entered the 2nd year of the project in September, our students have started working on the so called our common tale. It will be a collaborative effort of the students from the 6 partner schools and will consist of the characteristics of each nation's folk-tale tradition. The Hungarian team wrote the introduction of the story in October 2018:
"Once upon a time, in an unspecified location in the heart of Europe, beyond the mountains of glass, on the shore of the Great Sea of Dreams (but still in Europe), there existed an enchanted round forest, in the corner of which the Kingdom of Czüczüy (pronounced: tsootsoo) resided.
The elder king, His Divine Swineness John von Czüczüy (still pronounced: tsootsoo) had a minor heart attack one day, and realized, that his kingdom had no heir for the throne.
While it is true, that His Majesty had a daughter revered amongst the denizens of the forest and beyond for various reasons, due to feudal laws, as a woman, despite her beautiful long fur covering all of her body, her healthily puffy size, and those beautiful emerald green eyes, she couldn't inherit the throne.
And thus, the Battle Royale was announced, a series of tournaments, the victor of which would inherit the hand of the 'beautiful' pig princess, as well as the Throne to the Largest Kingdom in the World. Needless to say, it was an absolute mess, an utterly bloody conflict."
The work will be continued by the Portuguese team in November.
Check back in early December and read on Our Common European Tale! Until then, look at the photos taken during the Hungarian workshop!
